Dear Sir,
I have tears wellings up in my eyes Crying or Very sad from trying to get sessions to work in smarty. I have smarty runing and formsess. Both are working great Laughing , however, I can't get sessions to work properly Mad .
I've tried to understand by going all over the internet and trying to get an answer, and I thought I knew how to use them. Obviously not! Shocked
Could you explain it to me or give some examples.
I'm using "session start()" whenever I open a php file.
Please don't type the answer too fast as my brain is fried and I can't read too fast.
thx...

What kind of problem are you experiencing?
The session management lies out of smartys (default) functionality, so that the problem could be basically anything - the server, php settings, wrong session usage.

Best thing I can recommend for now is that you take a closer look at the session functions provided by php: http://ca.php.net/manual/en/ref.session.php

You should not have to do anything particular to get sessions running.

Just use session_start() before using any session var, and it should work. You just have to ensure that session.save_path is correct (phpinfo()) will give you its value, and ensure that the session ID is corectly transmitted between pages (either using cookies, or using a GET / POST variable).

As Duncan said, the sessions reference page on the PHP manual should give you any information you need.
